Smoke

When I get on the skinny pedal with the H and S set on wild or above I notice I have a mix of exhaust color . It seems the standard black but it is mixed with a gray. Is this normal?

The gray color may be a bit of white smoke mixed in with the black. Do you still have the EGR system installed? Possible leak on one of the coolers or a coolant leak somewhere. I'd prob start there.

sunds normal to me the more you push the pedal the more black it should be. if its heavy and thick white smoke you have a problem.

if theres some tray id be concerned. It probably is white smoke from coolant but with all the blacksnake coming out too it masks it.

My concern is just what he said that I may have a masked problem. I am new to power strokes or should I say returned after building a 5.9 for years and the factory twins and ease of build brought me back. I just don't know what all the kinks of the 6.4 are yet and it was 6.0 nightmares that rant off.

You should not have anything but deep black coal in large amts. Possibly a head gasket or maybe your EGR delete didnt install 100%?

It's going to be thick dark black under low boost conditions, but a more grayish color under high boost conditions shouldn't be cause for concern... Shouldnt it lighten up as you get air into the motor???

it for sure lightens up but its still black just very thin under high boost . my old 6.0l i blew the head gaskets and this happened it was always black and obviously under high boost its thin smoke so i guess it could look grey but when i blew my head gaskets it blew out black mixed with white and it looked grey completely different. So if its different then it normally looks i would be concerned. I'm not saying you have a blow head gasket but something is not right. Better safe then sorry if you choose to ignore it and say its not a concern you could have a lot more head ache down the road
